NASCAR may have been founded in February 21,1948, but it wasn’t
truly racing until Air Lift came along two years later. In 1950, Air
Lift patented their first air suspension product: a rubber air spring
that fitted inside a coil spring. It seems simple enough, but Air
Lift’s ingenious product created track-grabbing traction that
champion racers needed to nab the checkered flag. For the next twenty
years, Air Lifts were installed on nearly all the top cars, but this
technology would not be confined to the speedway for long.
Turning their attention away from the track, Air
Lift designed their first sleeve-type air spring for pickup trucks
in the 1960s. When the 1980s rolled around, Air Lift had come up
with air helper springs for heavier vehicles, such as ambulances
and RVs. In the 1990s, they began working with street rods and lowered
cruisers. These days, Air Lift continues to make headways and break
new ground in air spring technology.
only does the industry recognize Air Lift’s engineering excellence,
but so do their customers, whose opinions matter most. And, Air
Lift makes their air suspension accessories to fit a huge number
of vehicles. From sedans to heavy-duty pickups, Air Lift accessories
add stability, reduce body roll, and make towing and hauling safer.
